A mirror vault is a repository where Hybrid Backup Recovery (HBR) stores backup data in the cloud. You can use a mirror vault for geo-disaster recovery and cross-region data restoration.

Note
  • After a mirror vault is created, the data in the backup vault is synchronized to the mirror vault in real time. The historical backup data stored in the backup vault is synchronized to the mirror vault 90 minutes after the mirror vault is created.
  • You can create only one mirror vault for each backup vault.
  • You can restore data from a mirror vault but cannot back up data to the mirror vault.
  • Before you can delete a backup vault, you must delete its mirror vault.
  • You can create a backup vault when you create a backup client.

Create a mirror vault

To create a mirror vault, perform the following steps:

  1. Log on to the HBR console.
  2. In the left-side navigation pane, click Overview.
  3. Find the card of the backup vault for which you want to create a mirror vault. In the upper-right corner of the card, click Cross-Region Backup.
  4. In the Create Mirror Vault dialog box, select the region where you want to create the mirror vault.
    Note
    • To implement disaster recovery, do not select the region where the backup vault resides.
    • All the regions where the mirror vault can reside are displayed in the console.
  5. Specify the Vault Name and Description parameters, and then click Create.
    The vault name must be 1 to 64 characters in length.

Restore data from a mirror vault

If you need to restore data from a mirror vault, log on to the HBR console on an ECS instance. The ECS instance must reside in the same region as the mirror vault. Then, install the backup client. To restore data from a mirror vault, perform the following steps:

  1. Log on to the HBR console.
  2. Install a backup client on an ECS instance.
    Note Select the mirror vault.
  3. Restore data to the ECS instance in the HBR console.
    Note Select Other ECS Instance or Local Server from the Restore From drop-down list.
